2012 Candidate profiles


“I’m qualified for this office because I have formal leadership training and experience in two Fortune 500 companies. I have six years of management experience, and I’m Project Management Professional (PMP) Certified. I have been re-elected as president of Southaven Villa’s LLC for six years. In addition to my leadership experience I also have experience in technical writing, validation and quality. These job skills will serve me well in congress. I’ll write legislation to support our middle class, and identify and close current loopholes and earmarks.

“My priority in congress is to improve our economy. Big company executives have received a 500 percent salary increase in the past 15 years and the middle class received 5 percent. Our middle class and lower income salaries are frozen, and our jobs are being outsourced overseas. Our middle class is unemployed, underemployed, and underpaid. To fix this issue we must change our tax incentives to reward all companies to hire and retain American employees; and eliminate the tax incentives for outsourcing.”

Nelson works as an IT project manager. She is the mother of Alexandria Elizabeth Nelson, 10.
